Forest The Center for By-Products Utilization (CBU) at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee is an outstanding example of a successful public/private partnership. Formed in 1988, the CBU is dedicated to preserving the environment by finding practical uses for what is otherwise considered waste. It does so through research on  a variety of materials. The end result is the creation of cost-effective products that satisfy existing needs and bring about a significant decrease in the volume of waste. 

Research is not the CBU's only function, however. It also gathers and distributes information about all facets of environmental preservation. 

Closing the recycling loop through reduction and reuse is a much discussed ideal. CBU is doing it.
